Lockdown may be extended with ‘change in work style’

While the parties were near unanimous about extending the lockdown, Prime Minister Narendra Modi raised the concerns of DBT and emphasised the need to work differently to run the economy

In a revelation that would come as no surprise to people aware of the antics of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) as seen in repeated episodes of stage-managed outrageous incidents, police have made a big disclosure about Kapil Gurjar who had fired in the air some distance away from the protest venue in Shaheen Bagh, Delhi. According to the Crime Branch of Delhi Police, he is a member of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

The accused Kapil, who was nabbed from the scene, is seen in a picture along with the party’s Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh and Kalkaji candidate Atishi. This is a picture of a time when he became an AAP member in 2019.

During interrogation, Crime Branch of Delhi Police received many pictures from Kapil’s phone, including the one related to joining AAP. In these pictures, Kapil along with his father and many others are seen accepting AAP membership.

Crime Branch’s DCP Rajesh Dev said, “In our initial investigation, we found some pictures from Kapil’s phone which proves this. He has himself revealed that he and his father had joined the AAP a year ago. We have taken him on remand for two days.”

Soon after the Delhi Police’s revelations, the AAP called it a BJP conspiracy. AAP politician Sanjay Singh said, “Amit Shah is currently the home minister of the country. Such photos and plots will be found just before the election. With just three or four days left in the election, BJP will do as much dirty politics as it can. What does it mean to have a picture with someone?”

Kapil, a resident of Dallupura, while firing, shouted slogans of “Jai Shri Ram” at the scene and also said that only Hindus would rule here in what now appears to be a tactic to associate him with Hindu and/or nationalist organisations.

Kapil was produced before a metropolitan judge on Sunday who sent him to two-day police custody.

Kejriwal had taunted Shah about the law and order of the capital. After the revelation that Gurjar is an AAP member, it is likely that BJP would hit Delhi’s ruling party back.

Kejriwal had tweeted, “Amit Shah ji, what a mess you have made of our Delhi! Bullets are flying in broad daylight. Law-and-order is being flouted openly. Elections will come and go, politics will continue too, but for the sake of the people of Delhi, please pay attention to correcting law-and-order.”

This was the second incident in just two days when the firing occurred around the protest site. Earlier, a minor had fired a round near Jamia Millia Islamia, injuring a demonstrator. Both the areas are in south-east Delhi.

In view of the prevailing situation, the Election Commission had removed DCP Chinmay Biswal from his South-East District posting.
